Great food, juices, drinks and staff

The owner was really pleasant with us and others every time we went there. He hooked up the TV with children' programs to our children and helped two parents relax with their food, not once or twice, but every time!

I went to Pink Elephant for a quick bite to eat at lunchtime and wasn't overly impressed. There were only 2 other tables with customers and yet it took over 20 minutes for me to be served. Usually, I would walk out at that point but I was just too hungry and thought the wait would be worth it based... More

A fun, relaxed and friendly atmosphere for drinks in the evening. You lounge on cushions around the tables rather than sit on chairs. Good cocktails and the staff are quite fun.

Pink elephant is a great place to enjoy a fantastic meal or just have a delicious cocktail. It's very cozy and the staff is very friendly. Went there many times during our stay in Unawatuna, Sri Lanka.

Pink Elephant in Unawatuna Beach is a very cozy place with great atmosphere. The staff is friendly, the food is tasty and fresh and the cocktails are superb. Their Passion Mojito is top notch.

Great portions, decent food, wraps are a bargain. Beer could be colder, and servers a little more attentive, probably would have had a couple more drinks if they were quicker and aware our glasses were empty for 10 minutes. Worth a stop on your way from the beach.

As we had eaten nothing but fish we decided to have a 'meat' night so that may be why we were slightly disappointed in our meal. We had filet steak and the ribs, there was nothing wrong with it but just not quite as good as other meals - but we didn't try meat dishes anywhere else. With a couple... More
